Session Types

Our volunteers are experienced tech professionals, hiring managers, and recruiters who are committed to helping people develope their technical careers.

Resume Clinic

Give your resume a thorough polishing and help it stand out in the stack. Get advice on what should, or should not, be included and how to tailor your resume to the position you are seeking.

Mock Interview

Practice your interview skills by having an experienced interviewer, or panel of interviewers, ask you the questions you're not sure how to answer. Providing a job description at registration will help your volunteer prepare for your mock interview.

Career Conversation

Have an open conversation with an industry expert about whatever concerns you most.

Job Seekers’ Workshop

September 11, 2021 – 9:30-3:00 (EDT)

Job Seekers’ Workshops provide a welcoming place for people interested in the tech community to seek and provide advice. Sometimes mentoring or networking seems nebulous, but we coordinate directed sessions with knowledgeable volunteers on resume feedback, interview advice, and perspectives on the tech landscape. If you want career advice or hard conversation practice, this is the workshop for you.

Much of your workshop day will be customized to optimize your experience. Please answer some questions to help us better serve you. If you will be unable to attend the entire day, please let us know so that we can plan accordingly.
